25 Evergreen Ways to Make Money Online 2022
#1. Make Money by Uploading Videos on Youtube
Whether you accept it or not but Youtube is the hot topic right now and has been for years and you can make a lot of money on Youtube. Not only do you make money but become a famous personality too. Bhuvan Bam and Ashish Chanchlani are quite popular Youtubers but they are talented ones. And, I am not asking you to showcase your talent because if you have a talent it is automatically going to come out whether you want it or not. So, let’s just talk about something that you can do with a plan. Yes, you can create list videos by simply making a list about anything say richest people, best cars, top celebs, or anything.
I have this doubt that you may not believe me if I say you can make more than one lakh by uploading only a few videos. But one thing is to be very clear that you are providing some value through videos. So, let me give you a practical example. Recently I had a discussion with Dharmendra Kumar who has a Youtube Channel named My Smart Support where he makes videos to help YouTubers and bloggers. Meanwhile, he showed me a message received from his bank which had a recent payment of Rs 95000 which he received from Youtube for the previous month.
Now you may argue that Rs 95000 is quite less for a Youtuber like him but the fact of the matter is that he did not upload a single video in the previous two months. So, that was the earning from his old videos. This is what you can make from Youtube. You can make money online from Youtube passively.
#2. Be a Billionaire with Blogging
blogging is something we all are familiar with and you cannot deny that blogging is better than Youtube or not? Well, I cannot answer this question but all I can say is that you can make a lot of money with Blogging. There was a time when those who are into mainstream media used to neglect bloggers. But, blogging is a bigger pillar now in the media industry.
But how you can make money with it? Well, if you are considering yourself a good writer then you must give it a try. Because the core thing that you do is write and then there are a lot of things involved too but consider it as a writing workshop in the first thought. Actually, I am wrong here because you can also hire a third-party writer like me to write for your blog. Yes, I am a writer and that’s why I am writing this.
The good thing is that you can make money beyond your imagination. I know a few people who make a figure that exceeds $10000 a month. Now, you can guess what Blogging is capable of. But you will have to do things like Writing, SEO, Marketing, etc. If you are ready for all this then you must create a blog and start sharing your knowledge.
#3. Start with Affiliate Marketing
Let me assume this that you are aware of affiliate marketing but do you know how to make money with affiliate marketing?
Don’t worry I am here to help you make money online with affiliate stuff but if you don’t know what affiliate marketing is then. It is a form of marketing where you are paid a part of the selling price as commission for selling the product. Almost every e-commerce store has its affiliate program and you can join them. Amazon Affiliate is quite a popular one but you can join any affiliate and make huge money.
I know a popular Blogger who makes money only with Affiliate Marketing and I am pretty sure that his earnings are more than 3 lakhs a month. The best way to start affiliate marketing is to start a blog about your niche and start helping with people with the content. If people trust your content and you, they are surely going to follow your links.
Affiliate Marketing is the easiest of all the methods and if you can do it the right way you are bound to succeed. All you have to do is select a niche that has lesser competition and just start working for your dreams.
#4. Make Money Online with Consulting
Now, this is a bit interesting and knowledgeable part where you actually need some knowledge to talk about something. But, the good thing is that knowledge can be acquired easily if you want to and that knowledge could be very useful to others who will pay you.
I am not saying your knowledge is not good but there are chances that you may not be aware of the fact that Consultants charge for minutes. Yes, those at the top of the industry charge a very high amount for only an appointment of a few minutes. Imagine yourself in a position where you are the top guy and people want to know your view on everything.
You can make a hell lot of money but if you are looking to start it, here is the simple formula. All you need to do is to start a blog with your knowledge of the niche and keep publishing your knowledge. If people are reading your stuff, they are eventually going to ask your opinion and thoughts too. And, you can charge them to schedule an appointment on a phone or video conference.
The best plan is to let people know about your knowledge for free and they will pay to get more of it.
#5. Web Development
The easiest way to make money online is through Web development. All you have to do is create websites and make money. It feels like creating websites is very difficult but it’s not. I am not saying that you can create a website just like eating noodles but if you watch a few Youtube tutorials, I am confident that you can do it.
People who want to expand their business to the online world of the Internet need a website and if you convince them, they will pay you any amount you ask for. All you need is the knowledge of WordPress and that will make you a champ in this field.
There are people who find it very difficult and if you can make it easy for them they will pay you. As a beginner, you can offer them something complementary and you get a loyal client.
So, the good thing is that you can create a website very easily and that means you can make money online very easily. So, what are you waiting for now? Start your mission and get the wheel rolling on the field.
#6. App Development
I cannot say now that app development is easy but you can learn it if you want to. App development requires knowledge of a few programming languages and a few software. Here the core is that you should have the desire to learn it.
Similar to websites now everyone needs an app too. Everyone wants to get more and more users and smartphone is the key. If you know how to create applications for different platforms or any of the platforms you can make huge money out of it. The future is yours.
I have a friend who is into app development and now he is very famous. He created an app about his village and he got quite famous. And, it is worth noticing part is that he is just 17 now. One more app he created was about learning for students based on AI. Now he is learning advanced machine learning and stuff but he is quite popular and makes huge money.
You can also create an app for yourself and publish it on Google Playstore for Android devices. There you can place Admob ads and make money with increasing users. Simple isn’t it?
#7. Creativity in Content Writing
If you ask me anything about content writing, I can surely help you as I have been doing this for the past 3-4 years. And if you are looking to make a livelihood out of content writing, you can read my post about how you can make $500 a month by writing content as a freelancer.
Content writing is just writing but it has to be creative because everyone wants something new and that’s why they are going to read you. You need to think from the reader’s point of view and imagine if you would have been ready to read this. If you get a positive answer from yourself, that is the response you would get.
You can start writing for others and they will pay you. It does not require you to maintain any database or any website but simply writing. You can use Google Docs for free to start writing or any software you already have installed on your computer. You may not believe this but as a beginner, I used to write my articles on my phone.
If you want to know how much money you can make then let me tell you this you get paid for every word you write. As an example, I charge Rs 1.50 per word written by me.
#8. Graphic Designing
Graphic Designing is something you must be familiar with but do you know it includes almost everything you see on social media. It includes things like logo making, banners, social media info cards, and even blogging images.

People do exceptional work and they get paid exceptionally. Brands are ready to pay any amount because they need their work to be done immensely exceptional.
You can be a graphic designer with a bit of knowledge of Photoshop and Canva is always there to help you.
#9. Video Editing
Don’t you think video editing is a bit difficult thing to do? But let me tell you you are wrong. Video editing is quite easy but yes it needs creativity.
I would say Video editing is not an easy job but it is for creative people. There is one popular software called Wondershare Filmora and you can learn it as soon as you Download it, Yes, it’s very simple.
I am a video editor and I do it for my Youtube channel. Earlier, I also worked as a freelance video editor and even a full-time job for a few media firms. And, I can assure you that there is a lot of money there in this field.
You can charge any amount for editing simple short video clips. And, if you learn a bit of animation then only the sky is the limit for you.
#10. Voice Over
Voice-over artists are making a lot of money beyond your imagination but it’s in Bollywood, right? But we are talking about something that you can do online from your home.
You can be a voice-over artist from your home too. All you need is a mic and even if you don’t have money for it you can start with your smartphone too. Voiceovers can be started by recording on your phone and editing it on software called Audacity which is absolutely free.
There are people who are paying 8000-10000 for a five-minute voiceover. And, they give you the script you give them voiceover and you get paid. It’s simple to make money with voiceovers but you have to understand this you will have to be a bit creative here.
You will have to make your voice a little bit attractive so that people listen to you.
#11. Book Writing
Writing is an art that can be learned but you have to have an interest in writing. And, if you know how to write, you can even write a book.
I have been a writer for three years but I haven’t written a book yet. But, I know a friend who just wrote a book and made more than until now with just that book. All he did is created an e-book and started selling it via Instamojo.
Now, if you are looking to write a book just start visualizing some stories and putting them on paper. And when you have a few stories combine them and publish a book.
You can sell it on Kindle and make a lot of money out of it. All it takes is your effort only once and you make money for a long long time passively.
#12. Online Teaching
Teaching is something where you share your knowledge and make money. Remember it is not for money but there is always money because you need a driving force no matter what you do.
If I Have to give an example Think and Learn is the best example available right now. You can only imagine how much money they are making being the biggest Ed-tech company in the entire world. If you do not recall the name then Byjus is the popular product. All they do is create video lectures for kids and make money.
You can do the same as a teacher. If you already teaching someone then just start recording your lectures and expand your audience.
You can create a Youtube channel and upload they’re or simply conduct face-to-face virtual lectures or you can start your own website. The choice is yours but there is huge money in there.

If you are teaching already then you can also start creating a paid course. Some people do it on Youtube for free but you can do it professionally.
Udemy is one of the popular platforms where people sell their courses. You can create a course about any subject of your knowledge and upload it on Udemy then set your price and people will buy it.
If I have to learn anything I look for an online course on Udemy and there are a lot of people like me. If you know a particular topic share it by creating a course and making money out of it. Making money is easy when you have something to give.
To sell something you need something that is the product but in dropshipping, you don’t have a product but you sell it. It’s like selling a product without buying it.
You just find [product add your own margin to it and find the right customer. It’s like buying a product from Amazon and selling it on eBay. It looks a bit complicated but trusts me it’s very easy.
You can start your own Dropshipping store on Shopify and start making money. There is a popular Youtuber who made a lot of money by selling vapes online.
Imagine you have all the controls on your profit without having a product. You can add any amount of margin to your product.

Artwork includes any type of art. It can be a painting that you have painted or some handicraft work. It is very precious and those who have the talent can earn a livelihood out of it.

And it’s just an example, you can sell any type of artwork. If you don’t trust me just check out the Amazon website to see the products people selling online. And, even Amazon does not ask for GST to sell the artwork.
Nowadays, if you look at the marketing aspect more brands are going with influencers instead of paying for advertisements. This is because influencers are more reliable than paid ads.
An influencer is someone who has an influence over someone. It could be with any platform be it Instagram, Youtube, Facebook, or Tiktok. If you have a certain type of people following you, you can make money out of it.
